Here is why Jacob Juma is trending 10 years after his assasination

Juma was shot dead by unknown people on May 6, 2016, while driving past Lenana School in Nairobi.

The then Nairobi CID boss Ireri Kamwende said the businessman was driving from his bar at around 9.30 pm when he was shot by gunmen who escaped on a motorbike.


His car had about 10 bullet holes.

Two years before he was killed, Juma had sued a Nairobi man for plotting his death. 

He produced phone records and testified in court how the man also threatened him verbally. The threats began with a phone call. 

"I received a call from a man who informed me that another man had requested my number," Juma told the court.

He said, he was at his kitchen balcony, which faced the T-junction on Brookside Drive when he saw a Toyota Landcruiser with some men inside.

He told the court that he then saw one man alight from the car and others who were all dressed in suits. The group of five conversed for a moment. 

"I called an officer, Ali from Spring Valley police station, and informed him that some people had come to kill me," Juma told the court.

During Juma’s killing, neither his two phones, an expensive Rolex watch, nor money, was stolen, pointing to an assassination or revenge attack. The case is still ongoing.

Today, a decade after his demise Juma is a trending topic on Twitter.
